Andy,

I might be out for a spot of lunch somewhere. PM me your mobile number and I'll give you a ring if I go out tomorrow.

10AM - The weather looks lovely, just looking out of my home office window, glorious sunshine and light winds, seeing as the forcast is for sleet and snow for next two weeks I think im going to have to fire up the quotro and head to Poole. Will be going for a spin near Poole I think for a couple of hours this afternoon.

It is lovely out there , NIL wind , clear sky , mirror calm sea. One of those days that makes you happy to have a boat of any kind. I just sat on the boat for ten mins in the sun.

I hope it stays like that till the end of Tuesday ! And is the same on 5th !

I'll take it easy/warm/calm over hard/cold/rough everytime . But if its easy/warm/calm I am sure other things will be hard to make up for it !

Now what does Red/white/Red light mean again....???? - that'll be be me when my hands freeze solid- or will that be 2 vertical red/2 balls?..........

If your that cold, there will be no vertical element!

I hear that you might be joined by Patrick (Vortex) for your APB ...

Peter, I was out today collecting the training RIB and from the pics you can see it was bright but very cold, RIB was cloaked in ice and the floor did not de-ice even after stopping and cleaning tubes after refuelling
